FoUrTy-TwO Month Ripple Afghan

Remember THIS post?

It's done.  It's beautiful.  Abigail adores it.

I love this picture ... it looks so artsy-fartsy!


 There is one small section of split rail fence in our backyard that is PERFECT for hanging quilts, afghans and the like for photo shoots. 


Look at those waves.
UP ... down ... UP ... down ... I'm getting sea-sick!



All wooly and squishy ... makes me Happy.  =)

 HOOKY DETAILS
  • 100% worsted weight wool yarn purchased sporadically as I needed it for this project.  Patons Classic Merino, Lions Wool, Ella Rae, and a few hand-dyed by Yours Truly.  
  • Can't remember what pattern I used ... sorry!  =(  
  • Started out with a G hook and some how finished with an H hook.  One end flares out a bit but I can block it out I think.  =)
  • I'm too lazy to measure it but it fits perfectly on the top of a twin mattress. 

 I hope this inspires you to hook a ripple of your own!  It was really fun even though it did take me 3 1/2 years.  LoL.

Lots of Love,

Erin

Erin, That is so beautiful. I love the random colors and all your photos of it. The split rail is great. I have one and never thought to display there. Glad your daughter loves it! Super job! xo Robin

It's really gorgeous! I love the edging too.

Erin said...

Ms C, I loved doing the edging. =) I fussed and fussed to get those little clams shells to fit just right. It was 100% worth it, don't you think?

XOXO
